From the Principal:
1) Students- Please put your back packs and computers in your lockers when you are not using them. Do not leave back packs or computers unattended anywhere on school property, including the parking lots.
2) Students- Please remember that during the lunch hour you are to be in the gym area. If you are found anywhere else in the building during lunch hour, you will have detention.
3) A New Perspective- Often in life we are able to learn valuable lessons from our peers, our parents, our mentors, our coaches, youth leaders, our friends, as well as our teachers. I invite you students, to stop in and suggest a quote, saying, mantra, words of wisdom, or a bit of encouragement. Once a week we will add the newly chosen inspirational saying to the top of the bulletin, so that we can all benefit from being enlightened by a new perspective.
